Question:

A water tank springs a leak. Find the speed of water emerging from the hole if the leak is 3.0 m below the surface of the water, which is open to the atmosphere.

Velocity of Fluid Due To Hydraulic Pressure:

The pressure is exerted by the volume of water lie above any plane. When a fluid is allowed to flow from the plane below the volume of water, its velocity depends entirely on the height of the fluid column above the plane and gravitational acceleration.
